Math was always my worst subject in school and I hated every one of my math classes. But I always had more homework in math than any other subject, and I stuck with it, completing my homework and paying attention to all of the new information taught in class. I was usually very happy when I made a "C" or, in rare cases, a "B." I can only suggest that you do the same, and if and when you feel like you are falling behind or don't understand a new theory, take the time to see your teacher after class for an explanation. Falling behind in math can be much more serious than in English or history, so try to stay alert in class and keep up with the class assignments and homework. It's an important class that is essential for both high school and college, no matter what your college major may be.

The best way to get an A in math, even geometry, is to work on problems yourself and see if you get the right answer. Write out your work step by step and show it to a teacher or tutor. That way they will be able to tell you where you went wrong.
